The Yellow Canaries are keen on bringing in Tosun as a potential replacement for Vedat Muriqi who is edging closer to a transfer to Lazio.

Fenerbahce would struggle to sign Tosun on a permanent deal considering their current financial position but a loan move would be feasible.

The Toffees did loan Tosun to Crystal Palace in January but his stay was cut short due to injury.

A move to Fenerbahce would be highly controversial as Tosun was a former Besiktas player.

The Turkey international made a name for himself at the Black Eagles and is still loved by the fans.

Fenerbahce and Besiktas are rivals. Tosun joining the Yellow-Navy Blues would cause an uproar among supporters of the Black Eagles.

Tosun scored 10 goals and provided three assists in 49 appearances across all competitions last season.
